Chatswood High School students in Year 9 to Year 12 have the opportunity to participate in The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award.
The Award is an enriching program that invites young people to participate in a number of activities over a set length of time. Participation is entirely voluntary and is structured so students can design their own unique program centred on their interests and passions.
Students are able to participate in three award levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each award has four sections:
Students choose an activity in these four area and document their regular participation in these chosen area over a period of three to twelve months.
Students in year 9 complete the Bronze Award, Year 10 students complete Silver and Year 11 and 12 students work through Gold over a 2-year period.
The Duke of Edinburgh's Award is about setting goals. These goals are realised with persistence, determination and resilience and will see the student become better prepared for life's challenges in the future.
An Information evening about the Award is held early in term 1, with registration and paperwork to be finalised by week 8 term 1. Enquiries can be directed to the CHS Award Leader, Vicki Busse - firstname.lastname@example.org
